The answer is, yes. It’s the law, and it’s the right thing to do. We all expect to get paid for our work, whether we’re a planner, caterer, AV supplier or in hotel sales. The same goes for the people who create the music that we use to make our events more successful.
‘But I’ve already paid for the music!’ I hear you say. You may have bought a song on a CD, mp3 or via a streaming service like Spotify, however that only covers private use. It doesn’t cover the ‘public performance’ of the music at your event.
